Jarvis is offered for sale for the first time in 65 years and there is the rare opportunity to acquire one of the town's most exceptional early Tudor houses set in large peaceful gardens with direct access to the High Street. The Grade II Listed timber-framed house is of early 16th Century origin with later additions, and today provides spacious family accommodation overlooking the secluded grounds. The attractive elevations are plaster infilling and brickwork with shaped timbers and leaded light windows under a tiled and Horsham stone roof. Stepping inside, the house has a welcoming feel and all the features one would expect in a home of this period with exposed timbering, original joinery, fireplaces and some oak and brick flooring to complete the picture. The grounds extend to just over an acre with formal lawn areas and a lightly wooded backdrop for children's adventures. There is a garage and parking close to the house on Jarvis Lane, and to the west the house can be accessed from Wykeham Close, where there is further garaging and additionally the original carriage building which is divided to provide four further garages. The present owners of Jarvis have been fine custodians, maintaining this beautiful home for many years. Viewing will be a privilege and is highly recommended.


Jarvis Lane has limited traffic and has pedestrian access to the High Street via Church Street. This is a prime residential setting just a few minutes' walk from the picturesque town centre where there are shops for all daily requirements and Post Office. It is also convenient for primary and secondary schools, leisure centre with swimming pool, library, modern health centre, and churches. Steyning lies at the foot of the beautiful South Downs National Park which provides lovely walking country.
